, president obama followed in that footstep as the first african-american president of the united states, and he said that he would spend the rest of his life trying to live up to and follow nelson mandela's example. what was so notable about nelson mandela was that he actually achieved in practice the promise that president obama had held out in 2004 at that famous convention speech of bringing south africa together, adopting a policy of reconciliation at a time when there was such tremendous bitterness built up over decades and decades of conflict. it was a titanic achievement for a leader, for a statesman, and that's why so many people looked up to nelson mandela. >> you know, as you pointed out earlier today, one of the remarkable things in his epic life is when he came to power, he was a man without spite or -- though he certainly must have had some anger, he did not act upon that anger. he was a conciliator. he brought people from the former apartheid government into his own circle of advisors and in some cases, opponents into the government there. he was, to my thinking, both his

preventative care for 105 million cares. free preventive care. obama care provides health services to americans including free immunizations for children. free cancer screenings. free mammograms. what is your plan that would allow these folk, 105 million americans, to keep those benefits? >> first of all, there is nothing for free. you've got to pay for it. more people will lose their insurance under obama care. the republican plan is we have a choice. more choices not less. obama care narrows your choices. for competition, selling insurance across state line and above all, we're for driving premiums now. under obama care, the premiums are even higher. yonlt see any way obama care can work. >> let me turn to another subject. loans. last march, you took to the senate floor for 13 hours to filibuster a nomination because of your opposition to the military use of drones to attack u.s. citizens. this week as i'm sure you know, the head, we're looking at a picture of the drone right there, of amazon, announced they have plans, maybe five years down the road, that loans would come, pick up a package.

and will remain so. with americans disenchanted by obama care and a bad economy, it would seem the republicans would have some momentum, but they don't. because there is not one clear message. and even on philosophy, political philosophy, the party is deeply divided. it will take a leader like ronald reagan to help heal that breach. now, if you look at the situation nationwide, it's clear the democrats are going to campaign largely in poor and working class precincts. today fast food workers across the country demonstrated for a $15 an hour wage. that has been endorsed by president obama and most every other democrat. the so-called living wage issue will be a democratic hallmark next year. of course, if you give fast food workers a minimum of 15 bucks an hour, fast food prices go up for everybody. so, americans will pay more. that is a primary consideration in the debate. talking points believes the republican party must drop ideology almost entirely and concentrate on the economy and putting forth a healthcare plan that makes sense. everything else really doesn't matter. it's all about wages,

. >> reporter: one of those who says he was especially inspired is american president, barack obama, who shared his reaction a few moments ago to the passing of south africa's first black president. >> i would study his words and his writings. the day he was released from prison, gave me a sense of what human beings can do when guided by hopes and not fears. like so many around the globe, i cannot fully imagine my own life without the example that nelson mandela set. so long as i lii will do what i can to learn from him. >> reporter: south africa's now expected to spend the better part of a week, maybe more, celebrating the life of nelson mandela and world leaders are expected to travel to south africa. president obama is expected to be one of them. reporting live from washington, i'm steve handelsman. back to you. >> thank you. our coverage continues this evening. shomari stone rushed to the south african embassy this afternoon and he joins us live from there. shoma shomari? >> reporter: good evening, we are on massachusetts avenue and drivers are coming by, honking their horns, some putting u

see 4 million americans have been unemployed for six months or more. here's what president obama had to say in his weekly address. take a listen. >> for many families it can be the difference between hardship and catastrophe. it makes a difference for a mother who suddenly doesn't know if she will be able to put food on the table for his kids or a father who lost his job and is looking for a new one. last year it ended 2.5 people out of poverty and cushioned the blow for many more. >> now, alex, republicans are making the opposite argument. they are saying that the low unemployment rate or relatively low unemployment rate speaks to the fact that the economy doesn't need more stimulus, that they don't need to extend unemployment insurance. interestingly, though, i'll point out two things. one, the democrats in the white house not insisting that unemployment insurance extension be a part of a budget deal that might be passed next week. and also, alex, there are no big tax cuts or spending hikes that are -- spending cuts or tax hikes on the more vie zone. that speaks to the fact that ev
-800-medicare >> president obama sat down with chris matthews for an exclusive interview at american university. the president addressed problems with the obama care website and talked about the perception of mismanagement within his administration. >> the management of government and part of the reason people are so skeptical is that when we do things right, they don't get a lot of attention. if we do something that is perceived as a screw up, it will be on the nightly news for a week. when my former secretary of defense, wonderful public servant served under seven presidents, i asked him so bob, you got any advice for me? he said understand you have a lot of people working for you. someone at this very moment is screwing something up. that's true. i have to consistently push on every cabinet secretary and on every agency. how can we do things better and we can. >> the president was asked about 2016 and the possible democratic nominees. >> vice president joe biden and hillary clinton. compare and contrast. >> not a chance am i going there. here's what i will say. both hillary and joe would mak
president obama. one of the things we'll look at is mandela's relationship with american presidents. both starting with the anti-apartheid movement. also once he became a president. his work with bill clinton, his work with george w. bush. he would tangle with presidents. he was a very fierce critic of president bush on the issue of the iraq war. but also worked closely with him on the issue of aids. and he was also a great consoler of president clinton in his toughest times of the impeachment trial as well. we're going to look at all that today. also look at the -- really talk to some people who knew him very, very well. the human rights lawyer who helped draft a constitution of south africa. his pollster in the presidential elections. we're trying to look at the politician and his impact on american politics. >> and not to take away from his amazing accomplishments as the president of south africa, but the country is still plagued by problems, economic and racial. >> even though they are coming together and all coming together for nelson mandela, you have economic inequality. social ine
in after state benefits have run out and it was a program started under bush and continued under obama. it went from 99 weeks to 73. i don't know what the right number is but i do know that the 1.3 million americans who are getting unemployment benefits and having the stop on the 28th is bad politics and bad policy. >> today, john boehner told reporters at the presidents real focus ought to be on creating a better environment for our economy and creating more jobs for the american people. those jobs were there, shovel ready jobs that president obama spoke of often, would we be having this discussion about benefits? >> the unemployment rate has gone down from 2000 eight. whether there are enough or not, that is what politicians can debate around the edges. peoplelion, these are who come from all walks of life, white-collar, blue-collar and they need this assistance and what is also happening is some brinksmanship and public negotiating going on. i think they are close to a deal. it will come in higher than the sequestration rates will be hard for a lot of the republicans in the house fo
the georgetown. and president obama came to see him. so it is a lifetime of inspiration, there are obvious parallels. of course, his father from the continent of africa, them son mandela, the president being the first african-american president, it's almost too obvious to point out the deep rest nantz there. between these two men. and obviously someone that president obama looked up to a great deal. >> mike, appreciate that, thank you. >> joining us now he is a professor from ucla.'s goo, one of the real joys of this moment, is going to be had a personal association. with nelson mandela if you want to take a look with the former south african president. >> well, i have known about nelson mandela since i started studying and he had always been promptly inspirational. i met him for the first time after he had been released from prison. for all of that time in the 70's and 80's he was in prison. i was struck particularly by 1 point that president obama just made. he did indeed take action with the demonstration about apartheid. i think it was in 1981. many people have had a different time fro

. revisiting the theme of economic fairness and fair shake for american worker, this weekend president obama urged congress to extend these benefits. >> these are people we know. they are our friends and our neighbors. they sit next to us in church and volunteer in our communities. their kids play with our kids. they include 20,000 veterans who serve this country with honor. >> but reminding them of the american social compact hasn't lately been enough to sway republicans and certainly doesn't seem to be doing so now. appearing on abc, gop senator rob portman acted as if helping unemployed was some kind of strange exotic government activity that didn't belong in normal funding discussions. >> $25 billion no one was talking about until the last week, so it's an additional cost within this budget agreement. i think the thought was this would be handled separately. >> but as usual on the subject of fairness, no republican can out-republican kentucky senator rand paul. >> i do support unemployment benefits for the 26 weeks they are paid for. if you extend it beyond that, you do a disservice to t

mandela died at the age of 95. our cameras are awaiting the arrival of president obama inside the white house briefing room in the west wing. this is obviously the stuff of a special association, a special relationship, more than what nelson mandela enjoyed with a string of american presidents, not only, of course, had president obama before he was president met nelson mandela, michelle obama, the first lady and both daughters spent time with him in south africa at his home, of course, this towering moral authority, a man who had visitors from all over the world, especially in his later years when his health started to fail and they had to go to him. world reaction, of course, is just now starting as the news broke so late local time in south africa. the white house quickly reacting to this news, the confirmation from south africa, president zuma having announced it on live television. let's look in on the white house briefing room where we are expecting the president. chuck todd is there. chuck, we have had occasions where we thought the news was coming. sadly, there's no turning it aw
